White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s answer was chock-full of talking points and scant on answers.

So, par for the course for KJP.

The Biden admin has a COVID vaccine mandate for travelers entering into the U.S. by air… but not for those who illegally enter through the porous Southern border.

In an exchange with Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that unvaccinated illegal migrants walking across the border “is not happening.”

Doocy was asking KJP why the Biden administration’s COVID vaccine mandate for air travel is keeping out tennis star Novak Djokovic who cannot compete in the U.S. Open because of his refusal to get the jab, but people can just walk into the country unvaccinated and not even be screened for COVID.

At first, the White House Spokesmuppet says that these are two completely different things and reads through the talking points about medical privacy and yada, yada, yada.

Then she says that people are not just walking across the border.

No, really. She actually said that.

Out loud.

In the White House Briefing Room.

With the cameras rolling.

“It’s not that simple,” said KJP. “It’s not just that people are walking across the border. We have a plan in place. This is not like switching the lights on. ​T​his is going to take a process. We are fixing a broken system that was actually left by the last administration.”

Here’s the first part of the exchange:

KJP says that Title 42 is still in place — not for the lack of trying to ditch it by the Biden administration.

TITLE 42: Lawless Joe Upset That Agenda To Open Border Even Wider Fell Through

Title 42 is the provision that was used under the Trump administration to quickly expel migrants in the midst of the pandemic. The World War II-era public health regulation grants the government the “power to prohibit, in whole or in part, the introduction of persons and property” to stop a contagious disease from spreading in the United States.

But if it’s still in place, how is it that NYC and DC are starting to whine about the few thousand new residents sent their way courtesy of Texas?

It’s because the Biden administration has made exceptions that family units and unaccompanied minors can’t be expelled under Title 42.

That means that yes, Ms. Press Secretary, there are unvaccinated people just walking across the border.

Here’s the full exchange:

Half the time Jean-Pierre doesn’t seem to know what the reporters are asking her about and the rest of the time, she just “doesn’t have anything.”

KJP is so awful at spinning stories it would be better if the White House just handed all the journos copies of the talking points in her binder rather than let her continue to get up there and read every word like that.

Doocy’s Fox News colleague Bill Melugin who has done some stellar work covering the border responded to the video on Twitter.

Here are the videos he posted as evidence:

How can you look at 5 seconds of that and not realize that people are just walking across the border? Maybe if someone from the administration actually took a trip to the border they’d realize what’s going on.

The point here is that it’s pretty clear with these contradictory policies that even the complete incompetents in the Biden administration don’t really believe that COVID is the life-threatening illness that they fearmonger about.

The CDC has recently changed their guidance saying that unvaccinated people that have recovered from COVID should be viewed the same way as those who have been vaccinated.

The COVID theater needs to end now.

Dear Christian: Your Fear Is Full of Crap

by Doug Giles

Beginning in March 2020, many Christians went into lockdown-freak-out mode. Uncut, irrational, unbiblical, and not to mention, unconstitutional, fear gripped many churches and church leaders. Forced to choose between obeying the Word of God or the edict of man, most Western Churches buckled. We even saw it here in First Amendment-protected America.

The Apostle Peter buckled to fear on the night of Christ’s crucifixion. But he learned his lesson and lived the rest of his life bold as a lion. How can the church ‘go and do likewise’?
